While this is good news for Minnesota and the Upper Midwest, the extremely early timing of the announcement is very odd. MSP-ICN was just announced a few months ago for an April 2019 start. This...

I think you mean "B to F" in MSP as B is actually a little further.

But the key difference here is that there are moving walkways in the primary concourses at MSP (in addition to the C tram), and...

Fair enough. Note, also, that DL dropped the SEA-HKG service from daily down to, I believe, as low as 4x weekly during certain periods.

I guess what I'm getting at is that SEA doesn't appear to be...

Perhaps, but, the Switch and Nintendo have been enjoying their newfound success for a while. Yet this re-launch is not slated until 2019, a similar time-frame for the MSP-ICN launch. It doesn't...

No, that's kind of my point. CX, which of course is a behemoth at the other end in HKG, isn't even starting daily. It's not a strong enough market to support daily service on CX on their own, let...

1) Mostly O/D traffic from the NYC catchment area to/from the Pearl River Delta catchment area.

I think that says volumes about DL's attempt to "force" SEA into a hub for Asia-bound/Asia-originating travelers. DL simply couldn't (or wouldn't) compete with the other giants at SFO and LAX, so...

Unlikely that DL serves HKG directly anytime in the near future. The move is clearly to send connecting traffic through ICN on partner KE, and offer long/thin routes to the destinations that either...

Where are you flying that MSP-HND (or LAX-HND) does not satisfy your needs?

If you need to end/begin your journey in Tokyo, then MSP and LAX are designed for you. Otherwise, you are connecting at...

The employee who is giving you the buddy pass would be the best person to answer these questions, as well as tell you which cities are embargoed for buddy passes, even if Delta has regularly...

Your experience (or your mom's, rather) definitely seems like the exception rather than the norm. Sounds like a string of bad luck, unfortunately, which (if you fly enough), you'll eventually get on...

I would do the SEA-DTW connection first, a little more breathing room in case of delays at LAX. DTW is less likely to have delays, even with a 47 min connection. Third option would be LAX-MSP to...

I wouldn't be too concerned about a 30+ minute connection in MSP. Assuming no weather or mechanical delays (which could happen on any given aircraft at any given airport), you'll likely arrive early....

Incorrect. The highest capacity, strictly domestic fleet type is the 757-300 with 234 seats, easily besting any configuration of the 757-200 which, interestingly, also operates internationally on...

777 has 37 Delta One seats.

From an aviation geek perspective, try the A350 -- even if you're in economy, it'll still be a new experience (unless you've previously flown an A350). Otherwise, save...

Delta has been doing as little as possible to maintain the MSP hub -- the Sky Clubs are a great example of this.

Contrast that with what they've been doing in other hubs and you can see that MSP...

DFW-ORD is an even larger business market pair, and both have SkyClubs as well.

Should Delta be starting nonstop flights between DFW-ORD? I'm sure that AA wouldn't mind a bit.

Do you have access to a VPN?

I have occasionally seen that error when traveling and using public or open WiFi networks, but when I am on my company or personal VPN, everything seems fine.

Smells fishy...
